Brown makes parish proud

Over the years, many an area athlete have made Lincoln Parish sports fans proud.

On Saturday night, it was former Louisiana Tech University men’s basketball standout P.J. Brown’s turn.

Brown became the sixth representative from the Bulldogs’ basketball program and 53rd overall from the parish to be inducted into the Louisiana Sports Hall of Fame during ceremonies at the Natchitoches Events Center.

Along with boosting Tech’s number of men’s basketball players in the state Sports Hall of Fame, he increased the parish’s total in that sport to 11 (Grambling State University has five).

MONROE (AP) — A 22-year-old classical piano player from Choudrant has been named Miss Louisiana.

Justine Ker won the crown during the Saturday finals held at the Monroe Civic Center.
Ker is a student at Vanderbilt University.

She has studied the piano for the last 16 years and performed Chopin’s “Fantaisie-Impromptu” for the talent competition while wearing a black velvet evening gown with a flowing train.

Ker was the runner-up during last year’s Miss Louisiana competition where she also won the instrumental performance award.

Being thankful: A look at DART’s rural offices

Autrey, Terrie 2014.jpg

For nearly four years now, I have been writing columns about the Domestic Abuse Resistance Team for the Ruston Daily Leader.
I have covered educational topics, such as stalking, dating violence and elder abuse.
I have also written about events occurring in our community, such as the Christmas Angel project, our annual Radiothon, our Candlelight Vigils and our annual Collaboration is the Key training event.
Almost every event I have ever written about has occurred in Lincoln Parish.
Yet DART serves seven parishes, with an office and a rural advocate in each.
